My original point with the first post on this topic remains and even more so now. I fully believe that the Democrats and Liberals are beside themselves, going bonkers, with fear that Trump is going to reveal their inadequacies and failures and prove that the right person can get things done when they apply themselves. The deal with Ford keeping a Louisville Plant along with the recent announcement from Carrier (all this BEFORE Trump assumes office) has shook many Democrats to their core and you can just image Obama and his Administration people cursing and salivating, screaming about how Trump did this to show Obama up.
I believe Obama did this for people he cared about, the American worker and people that voted for him and those that didn't. Since his election he has demonstrated a willingness to consider his most ardent enemies and people that opposed him as he seeks to find the "best qualified" person for the job. That, like saving Carrier Jobs, Auto Jobs etc, has been what he has talked about for a year and a half and it wasn't done to show Obama up at all. In fact Obama could have done the exact same thing and beat Trump to the punch but (MY OWN OPINION) the reason, I believe, he and/or His Administration did not do it is they frankly don't understand business and are still economic and business lightweights who never created a job in the first place or did anything productive but rather lived in theory and suggestions all their life. Trump is a doer and a person that knows how to get things done and a negotiator and when viewed by American business, UNLIKE OBAMA, Trump is RESPECTED and feared to a degree.
Unlike Obama or most other politicians Trump also doesn't owe anyone and is in no one's pockets owing favors or having to repay loyalty. All of the above has and is making a difference and having an influence on some, previously, staunch democratic strongholds such as union members and union leaders several of which openly spoke of working against Trump and are now praising his actions to keep American Jobs here. I fully believe Democrats and Liberals are horrified that he may just succeed and in doing so reveal how stagnant and ineffective the politicians that should have been looking after middle America have been. They are horrified that people may just turn from their blind allegiance and start asking questions that, frankly, Democrats are not comfortable addressing or answering.
I love it! The best thing is maybe, just maybe, (and there are some) some Democrats will start doing their job rather than catching a ride along on coattails and just following the party line. There are some conscientious Democrats out there with good ideas and the ability to do something other than play party politics. Maybe, just maybe, they will stop being party people and start legislating and working for the American people along with some Republicans who also have been playing politics and putting their political careers above the American people they are here to represent. Maybe, in addition to draining the swamp, he (Trump) will kick some of the lazy, complacent politicians into gear and into doing their jobs. Maybe America will awaken to the fact that it, we, are Great Again!
I'll make one additional prediction or thought ... not only are Democrats and Liberals quaking in their boots and horrified at the progress that Trump will achieve and do what he says but from an economic, job, and trade, position Japan, China, and Mexico are afraid and concerned and from a military respect or position many of our Adversaries are extremely concerned about a resurgent superpower, America, and our Allies and friends are finally optimistic and excited that there may be respect restored and Trust fulfilled again!
